This is the one and I am sure you have all heard it before - but this IS THE ONE! The whole show is epic and well reviewed but this middle of the 1st set Across the Freakin Rio Grande OHHH is simply too good to pass up - a best of the best candidate...

can`t say I disagree with you. It`s pretty damn phenominal. I`m also partial to 5-25-77. 12-2-73 ( way before that show was a DP )and also have a soft spot for good ol 10-19-74

The I know you rider from 10-28-78 is just plain ridiculous, as in the good way.

You are correct sir. Didn't even look at the date and knew it had to be Boston garden.

I was at this show (5/7/77), front row, with my camera & telephoto lens. I have an incredible photo of Jerry during this song, during the power chord strumming part, if you'd like to see it reply to this post with your email address. A unique shot, huge smile on his face!

From the same year I prefer 9/3 or 11/6 and find 5/12,5/17 and 9/29 all to be on par with 5/7.An honorable mention to 4/30 and 11/5.

yes that 9/3 version is great, one of the highlights of that show , (I was there, with 100,000 others!) the eyes from 9/3 is super as well.

interested in hearing this version. I always thought that 9/3 had the best, at least the best I've ever heard.

couldn't agree more, i think this is the winner, imho better than 9/3 or 11/6/77.

i really like 8/5/74 (Dick's Picks 31) for an early Half-Step...
